January weather – it does exactly what it says on the tin.
The weather here in London has taken a decidedly chillier turn. It was obvious that I was going to need to take action to prevent my bunny ears from getting too cold. I was given no choice but to accept that I, Bluebell Bunny, was about to become a hat wearer! Now not everyone is a fan of the humble head warmer. Some may find them uncomfortable to sport, others simply feel they look unflattering on them but I am an avid supporter of the hat. Do not scoff or mock, worn the right way, a hat can be a great accessory to a fall/autumn/winter look.
How to wear a hat correctly:
- Get a hat that fits your head – it shouldn’t be precariously propped on top of your head likely to slip off with any sort of head movement (retro Olly Murs-esque look) or uncomfortably tight causing the wearer a headache.
- Co-ordinate hat with outfit – should be an obvious one. In winter you’re probably looking at matching it to your coat.
- Season/Occasion appropriate – be sensible here. Summer hat with winter office wear… just plain wrong on all levels.
- Hair under the hat – At some point you’ll need to take that hat off your head and you don’t want to be greeted with a frizzy nightmare lurking underneath. Style your hair simply under that hat (think ponytail etc) and you should be fine.
Now as a bunny, some of these points will be irrelevant to me but hopefully useful to human folk. This is by no means a comprehensive list of the Do’s and Don’ts of hat wearing but it should help you avoid any unnecessary faux pas.
Most of all remember not to hate on the hat!
